Hello everybody! After scouring through the Indexes and talking with various folks I noticed that there isn't a writing club for those of us who are college age and older. I got permission from Herman to give this thread the go ahead and so here we are! Now you know who you are -- if you're 18 - 20 or don't quite feel like you fit in the "teen" crowd or perhaps you're in your twenties or thirties and don't want to be classified as "over thirty." Whatever your status as an "Inbetween" happens to be feel free to jump right in! Here's a few topics for discussion to help us get to know each other: How old are you? Come on we're young enough here that we shouldn't be embarrassed about our ages What was your first experience with Star Wars Why do you like to write? Who's your favorite character to write and why? That being said I'll get the discussion going : How old are you? I just turned 23 this August What was your first experience with star wars I was one of those who didn't discover star wars until much later in life. I think I was around 16 or so in 97 when the special editions came out. I had to chaperone my younger sister while she dated this guy I had a crush on. Sad but that's how I got into star wars He took her to see Return of the Jedi. I knew it was one of three. I didn't want to be completely lost while hte movies were going on so I dug out our very old copy of A New Hope that mom had taped off the tv ages ago. I watched on a very small 9" screen in my parents garage cause all the other tv's in the house were busy and I didn't want to go to the movies without at least some knowledge of who was who in star wars. The next day when we saw Return of hte Jedi on the big screen I was amazed and exhilarated and I jumped right into star wars fandom full speed ahead and have been there ever since. Why do you like to write? I write for fun I've been known to sit at my computer for hours just writing. It's social for me. I usually have someone I'm writing with and we have lots of fun just chatting and plotting out stories for hours on end. My husband thankfully is very understanding of my need to write. Who is your favorite character to write and why? For me, Qui-Gon is. He was my favorite character in the movies when Phantom Menace came out. His living Force connection and sympathy for others and the fact that he held on to his belief despite the fact that it was unpopular really stuck with me.
